In January 2017, the House of Lords debate on Defence Capability, initiated by Lord Robertson, revealed a number of areas for the United Kingdom to consider two years after the last Strategic Defence and Security Review in 2015. In this panel discussion, the Changing Character of War Programme brings together members of the House of Lords who participated in the original debate to engage in a discussion about the threats we face, the issues that concern us from a defence and security point of view, and the implications for future planning. The panel will be chaired by Lord John Alderdice and will include representatives from the three main political parties.
